JOHN TRUITT: People have never seen these dogs. I can show you a million pictures, but it’s nothing like seeing one of these micro pit bulls in person. LADY: Beautiful. JOHN TRUITT: Will you get up, silly? Come on.
Here we go. COMM: This is Queen Califa. She is a micro pit bull promising to be the next big thing
in the world of designer dogs. JOHN TRUITT: I got Queen Califa maybe two years ago and I’m all about micro pit bulls.
Queen Califa is one of the best representations of what a micro pit bull should look and function
like. COMM: Owner John runs the company, The Collectibulls, who breed and promote these small but perfectly
formed breed of pit bulls that he sells for an average of $20,000 each. JOHN TRUITT: A micro pit bull, it’s the same thing as a pit bull, it’s just on a
smaller frame. It’s like a miniature pit bull. The average American pit bull terrier
is between 19-21 inches and the new micro pit bulls are between 9 and 11 inches. The second
thing that defines this breed is their, how extreme they are on such a small frame. When
I say extreme, as far as they are built, what I’m talking about is maximum chest width, a real bulky neck, a solid strong firm rear. Yeah. JOHN TRUITT: They are the ultimate family companions. They have excellent temperaments
and that’s our main reason for producing these dogs – to be friendly, and break that
negative stereotype that surrounds the American pit bull terrier. JOHN TRUITT: One of the main things I like to do with Queen Califa is take her out and
get her some exposure and take her on walks. Today my model friend Julya is going to be
walking downtown Long Beach, hit some hot spot. JULYA BAER: What I love about Queen Califa is she has got a great personality. I love
all of her look, she is just like so tight and muscular and like she is adorable. I just
love her. JOHN TRUITT: She is an attention whore, you know, if that makes any sense, and she just
loves attention. JOHN TRUITT: As you can see she is a micro pit bull, one of the smallest ones out here.
LADY: Yeah. LADY: So, the biggest pit bull in the world, what about him?
JOHN TRUITT: Oh, his name is Hulk and this is the smallest pit bull. LADY: Why does she make that sound. JOHN TRUITT: I think because she has a short
snout. She does it when she is excited or when she is trying to get your attention.
It’s part of the breed, it’s genetics. COMM: Queen Califa has been gathering a dedicated fan base. And it’s not surprising that owner
John has received some lavish offers from fans wishing to purchase her. LADY: Oh, you’re so sweet. JOHN TRUITT: I have received a number of different offers on Queen Califa. The highest bid so
far has been 75,000 for this girl. But if you ask me, I’ll say my girl is priceless
and I would never sell her. LADY: I love it. I love it. JOHN TRUITT: Will I be breeding Queen Califa? To be honest on that question, I’m not a
100% sure. But if I did, I would be more of a selective breeder. Meaning that if I bred
my girl down, I would breed her to a stud that I feel has what she lacks. If I do breed
her, our puppies will go for a nice price. Nothing would be sold for less than $20,000. GIRL: Really nice! JOHN TRUITT: Oh, really nice, come give her
some love. LADY: A bully. She a bully? JOHN TRUITT: Right.
LADY: Yeah. I have four pit bulls, so I know my dogs. She is beautiful. I like her. They
are cute. They are fun to look at and they are beautiful dogs. JOHN TRUITT: Right now, we’re in Hollywood, on the Hollywood strip. I like to bring my
girl Queen Califa down here, because she is a Hollywood dog and get her a lot of exposure. LADY: Beautiful. JOHN TRUITT: Come touch her. Come touch her. LADY: It’s a pit.
LADY 2: No, no, no. It’s a American…boxer? MAN: American pit- bull?
JOHN TRUITT: It’s a micro pit. JOHN TRUITT: Today was a great day. We took her to three different locations, we got a
whole bunch of exposure and we actually networked a lot today. She always enjoys every bit of it.
